on the filibuster? >> there is a division between political scientists and historians about this. political science will look at the system and say, what is wrong with this. the historian will look at it and say, how did it get way. we tend to be less active in suggesting changes to the system. floyd riddick said, the rules of the senate are perfect. what he meant by that was, the senators have exclusive control over writing their own rules. these are the rules that have written, and this is what i carry out. if the want to change them, they will change them to fit their circumstances. they have been filibustering since 1789. the senate and house have developed in remarkably different ways over time. the constitution said, each house can write their own rules. you come to the senate. the rules of the senate have always given much more muscle to the minority. sometimes it is the minority party. sometimes it is a minority faction inside a minority part to says, "i object," and everything stops. every senate majority leader is under a lot of burden to try to get a very uncooperative organization to wo

science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> with hotwire's low prices, i can afford to visit chicago for my first big race and l.a. for my best friend's wedding. because when hotels have unsold rooms, they use hotwire to fill them. so i got my hotels for half-price! >> men: ♪ h-o-t-w-i-r-e ♪ hotwire.com >>> this is the space normally reserved for the rewrite in the show, which as faithful viewers know is me discussing something alone here. but better work has been done here than i could do, so i'll have a guest here to guide us. the fact is, before the president finished speaking today, before he finished speaking, republicans in the blood-drenched grip of the nra were already issuing statements filled with nra talking points. missouri republican senator's statements said the president's proposals today fundamentally failed to propose ways to prevent issues like sandy hook, and instead, he is intending to restrict the second amendment rights of law abiding americans. no word yet on how this out right lie was proposed by the staff or his son, who is on the nra board of dir

may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> former vice president al gore, a sometimes critic of the president's environmental efforts, writes in his blog his forceful commitment to take action will rekindle the hopes of so many that we are at long last approaching the political tipping point beyond which we will finally start transforming our economy to sharply reduce global warming, pollution and safeguard the future. let's bring in democratic strategist and pollster margie o'mara and senior vice president with the winston group, myra miller. good morning. margie, the president wants to focus on what he can do administratively with executive orders although he does plan simultaneously to campaign for public support. very different strategy than he used in his first term, isn't it? >> well, yeah. i think the lesson really here for both obama and for congress is that voters want people to come to the table and find compromise on whatever the issue, whether it's

may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> after outlining this broad, ambitious agenda, the president then went to lunch with the people who will seek to block it. surrounded by congressional republicans, president obama acknowledged the gulf separating him from his adversaries on capitol hill. >> i recognize there are profound differences in this room, but i just want to say thank you for your service, and i want to thank your families for their service because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives, i know that all have us serve because we believe we can make america for future generations. >> the question still remains. can he actually implement it? e.j., my friend, it's rare we get to see you in the flesh. i go to you first on this. there's been a lot of analysis about whether that speech was kind of almost a rejoinder to reagan's first inaugural. a, what do you make of that, and, b, in terms of actually moving this policy forward, can th

. liz marlantes of the christian science monitor, bill kristol from the weekly standard and fox news political analyst, juan williams. what do you think of his initial approach to the second term. >> it will be a surprise to me if the tone he used in the news conference the other day where he -- as you showed earlier in the broadcast, he cast dispersions on the motivations of some of his political opponents i suspect he will not do that in an inauguration, i went back and looked at old inauguration speeches from earlier presidents, second inaugurals and they weren't as full of bringing us together as first ones are but they still tended to be relatively nonpartisan speeches and i think that would be appropriate and my guess is that that is what he'll do and if he doesn't we'll have real news. >> chris: what we can always hope for. liz. >> yeah, i agree with what brit said. i think the biggest challenge for obama in this inauguration speech, is, i look back at his first inauguration speech and one of the lines i think got a lot of attention was the issue of whether government is too b
